Gizmodo: The Evolution of the TV Camera

Posted 6 years, 10 months ago

Attila Nagy from Gizmodo gives a detailed account of the evolution of the television camera.  Nagy writes:

It is a cliché that our TV watching habits are changed a lot in the past few decades. But if we look back in time, we can see how broadcasting technology has been changing continuously since the first television programs were telecasted for the first TV sets, and how broadcasters have innovated to keep us entertained.

The following pictorial review tries to sum up these changes focusing on one technology aspect: the state of the art television camera that sends live electronic moving images to our home screens. The photos below show an amazing variety of professional television cameras, milestones of broadcasting history, how the need in broadcasting sport and political events became the main driving force in embracing and applying the latest innovations.

From the 1930s to today, see the full evolution here.
